why indian muslims mistrust israel.

Reader comment on item: India, the Most Pro-Israel Country

Submitted by Bharatiya (India), Jun 19, 2010 at 11:56

most of the muslims in india have a wrong opinion on israel. I feel Palestinians are using islam as a rallying cry. they protect israel's war against them like an attack on islam. that is untrue. israelis will fight any one who is against their nation regardless of their religion. when i raised the topic of indo israeli ties during a casual talk with my muslim freind, he said he would be wary of israel. i asked him why. he gave a plethora of reasons citing dubious sources and a gross misinterpretation of hadith. I asked him how does he know it. He cited an article in an urdu daily written by a cleric from saudi arabia. Well this explains it.
